    ????  How to Deploy a .War file on JBOSS ????

    nuser Newbie

      Hi All,
      I deployed an Application on Tomcat server and it is running fine.
      Now, I want to deploy the same on my newly installed JBoss server.
      I have the .war, server.xml and web.xml files with me.
      Where should I copy all these files to deploy them on JBoss Server?
      Any help is really appreciated.

      Thanks!

          If you place the .war file in the jboss/server/xx/deploy/ directory, where xx is either all, default, etc, (depending on which you are using) it should be automatically deployed.

          Make sure that your web.xml and jboss-web.xml files are in your WEB-INF directory.

            thanks kirkh!

            In fact, previously I deployed it on tomcat successfully. So, can I use the same web.xml here?

            Moreover, when I placed the .war file at specified place, and tried to execute run command, it gave me one error while deploying it...

            Here ixreg.war is the .war file. But, in some separate server config file (on tomcat) I have configured the server context-root path.
            How to set it on JBoss?

            Thanks.

              The same web.xml file should be ok, but you'll need a jboss-web.xml file there as well to configure the context and any external references that are needed (like your Oracle jdbc reference). You can lookup the format for the jboss-web.xml in the jboss/doc/dtd directory, but here's a sample snippet:

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
              <!DOCTYPE jboss-web PUBLIC "-//JBoss//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"
              "http://www.jboss.org/j2ee/dtd/jboss-web_3_0.dtd">

              <jboss-web>

              <!-- Resource references -->
              <context-root>/</context-root>
              <resource-ref>
              <res-ref-name>jms/TCF</res-ref-name>
              <jndi-name>ConnectionFactory</jndi-name>
              </resource-ref>

              <!-- EJB References -->

              </jboss-web>

              You'll need to figure out how to add the jdbc pieces here (look at the data source sample code) in order to resolve your jdbc reference issue. Since I'm not accessing a database from my servlets, I can't give you the sample code you need.

                Hi Kirk,

                Let me try that. Meanwhile, a quick quesiton -
                what are the Equivalent files in JBoss for the conf/server.xml and conf/web.xml?

                Any clue?

                I mean, I have all my configs in these 2 files. So, what other places I need to make changes in JBoss?

                Thanks,
                Nirav

                  I've never used Tomcat in standalone mode, so I can't tell you for sure. My guess would be that the web.xml is the same (standard), and the server.xml would be the jboss-web.xml. However, every server has its own specific setup xml files that are completely different from every other server. With that in mind, I would recommend getting the docs for JBoss and reading through the setup procedures. They are pretty simple once you get the hang of them, but the docs are marginally helpful.

                  Good luck,
